He can learn Outrage in B/W 2. O.o
Hey pokemon database!!! I'm new and this is my first post! Wow this is random! :) yeah I taught my arcanine outrage, well, because it's outrage!!
Arcanine is my Favorite so what i recommend is the following:

-Flare Blitz
-Solar Beam
-Morning Sun
-Sunny day

I also recommend Your Arcanine has Good defensive stats and is holding an Heat Rock, the less u need to use Sunny Day the more attacks you can get in!
I'm not really strong right now(he is just level 32)but here is my
Arcanines move-set

Fire fang
Dig
Flame wheel
And strength

Trait: Intimidate

Arcanine is a great Pokemon that can perform well in most situations.

Arcanine@ Expert Belt
Ability: Flash Fire
Nature: Mild
Moves:
Flare Blitz/Flamethrower
Sunny Day
Solarbeam
Morning Sun

This is my personal favorite setup for Arcanine. You can choose either Flare Blitz or Flamethrower for your STAB move depending on if you want Arcanine to be a special or mixed sweeper. If you want him to be mixed, I would place his EVs as follows: 252 Atk, 252 SpAtk, 4 Spd. If not, I would place them like this: 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 Hp. Solarbeam gives you coverage against all of Arcanine's weaknesses and even without STAB the expert belt gives you the power you need to deal considerable damage to your opponents. Sunny Day is a no-brainer. It gets rid of the charge move for Solarbeam and strengthens your STAB move. It also increases the healing power of Morning Sun. Finally, Morning Sun will heal for the recoil of Flare Blitz and any other attacks Arcanine withstands.

EVs: 252 Attack/252 Speed/4 Sp.Def

Hope you like it and my Arcanine has the funniest nickname ever.

Just like a lot of the gen 1 Pokemon, this guy is also a classic. Anyways allow me to show you an awesome physical moveset that will obliterate your opponent's Pokemon.


Item: Choice band.

Nature:Adamant.

Ability:Intimidate.


Moves:

Flare blitz: Does lots of damage at the cost of some hp.

Wild charge: A powerful physical electric attack that costs some hp You don't have to worry about those worthless water types anymore ;D.

Dig: Deals with rock type Pokemon.

Extremespeed or outrage: Extremespeed is a powerful move that most of the time lets you attack first. Outrage is even more powerful but you get confused after using it and it isn't a priority move.


Strategy: Choice band will allow your attack stat to be boosted however you can only use one move. (unless you switch out.)

...Flame charge? With a priority move? If you want speed, use Agility. If you want a power STAB, use flare blitz >.>
if you see a steel mono without heatran and say YOLO and then Flame CHarge everyone

I actually use this doge as a tank

RK9 @ Leftovers

enter image description here
Ability: Intimidate
Gives you some natural Physical bulk allowing you to invest more in SDef if you so want to.
EVs: 196 HP / 252 Atk / 60 Def or SDef
Gives some mixed bulk and attacking power
- Flare Blitz
- Extreme Speed
- Will-O-Wisp
- Morning Sun

Flare Blitz is a decent STAB with Morning Sun to heal off the damage. Will-O-Wisp is the bread and butter of this set, allowing you to cripple physical attackers to nothing while getting off residual damage. E-Speed allows some neutral coverage and finishing off stuff.

Here is my Arcanine set:
train him in attack EV
Nature: serious/hardy/docile
I don't really mind about the nature. Its base stats are good enough
Arcanine @ Razorfang (make foe flinch with its good speed stat)
-Crunch (good coverage and may lowers defense)
-Thunderfang (coverage against water)
-Extremespeed
-Flamethrower
you can change flamethrower to flareblitz but give it Leftovers instead
